The Black Crowes will be releasing a new covers EP titled 1972 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of some legendary rock acts.

On April 11, the band has previewed the six-song collection of their own renditions to classics such as the Temptations’ “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone,” the Rolling Stones’ “Rocks Off,” Rod Stewart’s “You Wear It Well,” and David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream.”

1972 will be out on May 4 and will be available digitally as an Amazon Music exclusive. While, vinyl and CD editions will arrive two days later via the Black Crowes’ Silver Arrow label. The set is available for preorder now.

Frontman Chris Robinson said in a statement:

“The year 1972 was a watershed moment. Some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs ever made came out of that year.

“To get our band back together in the studio, it had to be a celebration of rock and roll. This record is about love and devotion to something that makes us feel good. We hope that it makes fans around the world feel the same.”

The Robinson brothers, Chris and Rich, reunited on their Shake Your Money Maker anniversary tour last summer, with additional dates planned to be announced soon. 1972 will mark as the band’s first release since 2009’s Before the Frost…Until the Freeze.

On May 4, the Black Crowes will celebrate the release of 1972 with a performance at Los Angeles’ famed Whisky a Go-Go, which will be broadcast on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel.
